Hi @anna-smajdor thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I understand the point you are making about individual hands-on consultation, but I guess it depends on the activity the students are doing e.g.
- Students writing as a group – one has the role of the ‘corpus researcher’ and helps the group with language
- Students editing the same piece of writing individually, then present their corrections/improvements to the group including information on what they found in the corpus
- Students editing their own individual piece of writing after tutor’s feedback
In all three tasks, the teacher monitors and helps students the corpus searching. Obviously, these would best work with students having their own laptops in class instead of sharing a classroom computer.
